Former Public Regulation Commissioner Jason Marks is suspending his campaign for Attorney General according to NM Capitol Report.
This essentially ends Marks’ candidacy, unless he suddenly raises a large amount of money.
After much consultation and consideration, it has become clear that the fundraising gap has put our campaign in a position where the prospects of winning are slim under most scenarios. It would be unfair to my friends and supporters – and to my family – to ask for continued commitments of time, money, and energy to the race under these circumstances. So, with disappointment, I am suspending my campaign for Attorney General.
This means that the only candidate in the race is State Auditor Hector Balderas. Balderas is term-limited out of the State Auditor spot and previously lost int he Democratic primary for U.S. Senate to Martin Heinrich.
NM Capitol Report reported that Marks would consider a run for a different office.
